    Simple WiFi Question


    Alright I have a real quick wifi question for Fedora Core 3

    I have the wifi working
    Acomplished this by entering
    Code:
    [root@localhost aeuzent]# /sbin/iwconfig eth1 key ##########################
    [root@localhost aeuzent]# /sbin/dhclient eth1
    My problem is I can't get it to work on boot

    Here's my ifcfg-eth1 file
    Code:
    DEVICE=eth1
    BOOTPROTO=dhcp
    ONBOOT=yes
    TYPE=Ethernet
    KEY=##############################
    USERCTL=no
    PEERDNS=yes
    IPV6INIT=no

    You could write a simple script that sets essid, key, nickname and other parameters and modify /etc/rc.d/rc.local like this:

    Code:
     if [ -x /pathtothescript ]; then
       . /pathtothescript
    fi
    This is how rc.local file should look like.
